Note from Janet Wikler:  This is the last poem that Elinor Schloss Wikler ever wrote.  "Lagoon" is the name she gave to the electric typewriter that I bought her shortly before she died.  She named it "Lagoon" because of its pale blue color.  I have shown the poem exactly as she typed it; her typing had a quality that was as characteristic of her as handwriting is for many people.

"Frog" and "Froglet" are nicknames we had for one another; "Dangel" is a nickname she had for me.
